The Daily Mail have claimed that Victor Wanyama is now set to remain at Tottenham Hotspur this month after French side Amiens and Spanish club Leganes have failed with loan bids to land the Kenya captain.
Wanyama, 28, is completely surplus to requirements at Tottenham after the club completed an 18-month loan-to-buy deal for Gedson Fernandes. Beforehand, Wanyama has only managed two appearances for Spurs this season.
Reports earlier in the day claimed that multiple clubs were interested in signing the former Southampton man. But the latest report claims that Wanyama is to remain at Spurs, after Amiens and Leganes had loan bids rejected.
Celtic were keen on bringing Wanyama back to Parkhead, but the midfielder – who has scored seven goals in 97 games from Tottenham – has also seen the chance to rejoin Celtic pass him by, due to his £65,000 a week wages (Mail).
TBR’s view – Wanyama may have a tough six months ahead of him
With the summer window a long way away, Wanyama may have to prepare himself for a lengthy spell on the sidelines. He clearly is not part of the plans at Spurs, and the signing of Fernandes has only pushed him down the pecking order.
It would not be of surprise to many if Wanyama is seen representing the Under-23 side at Tottenham during the second half of the season. Only a multitude of injuries will see the midfielder play again.
